Hey everyone. I got my first blood test results and I am very upset. I have no idea how severe these numbers are and how long will it take to feel at least a bit better but I just can't do this any longer 😔
TSH is 227 (0.27-4.20)
T4 is 1.3 (12-22)
Antibodies 1328 (<109)
I'm starting 50 mg levothyroxine (in a golden package) today, and will have to double it after a month.
I also started to take Centrum Performance, my doctor said it's not really necessary, however I've been anemic before and I am very sure that I don't have my vitamin and iron levels right. It has all important minerals and vitamins. I've been to a blood test twice this month and just don't understand why she didn't request a more detailed test as everyone here seems to know that it's important.
Also, I'm no expert but is there any way finding out the reason for these very bad results and the the illness itself? What causes these very extreme results?
And I consider myself pretty durable, I used to work around 70hours a week as store manager in a subway, so I am tough but now I can't even walk for thirty minutes and it's making me crazy because I do want to work but I just can't and people don't believe me that i can't. And I've been living on my boyfriend's salary for two months now and it makes me sick😭 and I can't apply for any benefit to make it easier for him. Can I?
